Main Aur Charles
Director: Prawaal Raman
Cast: Randeep Hooda, Adil Hussain, Richa Chadda, Tisca Chopra
Even if you aren’t a ’70s kid, chances are slim that you haven’t heard of or read about serial killer Charles Sobhraj. He lured young women with his smooth ways and murdered them. He made news again as he escaped from Tihar Jail in 1986. And, Main Aur Charles chronicles the chilling exploits of Sobhraj (Hooda), and Delhi cop Amod Kanth’s chase (Hussain) to put him behind bars. This is an ambitious film, mostly well-researched. But director Raman fails to tell us what made this psychopath last so long. Watch it for Hooda. It’s his show all the way.

That one doesn’t need stars to make a film work is proven by Titli. The film takes us through the darker corners of Delhi, exploring the lives of the people who are rarely considered where the nation’s economic growth is concerned. Titli (Arora) is the youngest boy in a family of car jackers. His brothers survive by engaging in petty crime, and decide to marry him off so they can have a female partner in crime.The girl shoots down the plan. What happens next is not as relevant as the depth of the story, and its characters. Don’t miss it. —TI
Director: John Wells
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller
In this drama, Bradley Cooper plays chef Adam Jones who is mercurial, self-sabotaging, passionate and brilliant at his work in the kitchen. But in Paris, a while ago, he would have blown up a career on booze and substance abuse and alienated everyone. But he gets a second chance and now finds himself wandering around various dull luxury tourist locations in London, keen to take over a flagging restaurant at the Langham Hotel, achieve the Michelin three-star rating and get redemption. It is a decently structured story of personal demons and culinary competition, with a couple of nice twists thrown in. Watch it if you love food.
